No, very bad article. The teacher was an English instructor teaching students to learn English. It was the students (who were from Pakistan and other places) that complained about the veil being in the way, mitigating their ability to learn because they could not follow the way the instructor would pronounce words.
Q. Are British Muslims doing enough?
has found that more than one in ten thinks that the men who carried out the London bombings of 7/7 should be regarded as “martyrs”. Sixteen per cent of British Muslims, equivalent to more than 150,000 adults, believe that while the attacks were wrong, the cause was right.
article wrote:This perception of welcome persists despite the fact that French Muslims are somewhat more likely than those in other European countries to report that they have had a bad experience attributable to their race, ethnicity or religion. Nearly four-in-ten Muslims (37%) in France report such incidents, compared with 28% in Britain, 25% in Spain and 19% in Germany. Younger French Muslims are more likely to report a bad experience -- 40% of those under age 35 compared with 31% of those age 35 or older.
same article wrote:But what most distinguishes French Muslims from their co-religionists not only in the Muslim world but in Europe, is their attitude toward Jews. Fully 71% of French Muslims express a positive view of people of the Jewish faith, compared with only 38% of German Muslims, 32% of British Muslims, 28% of Spanish Muslims and still lower numbers in the predominantly Muslim countries surveyed. In this, Muslims reflect the view of the larger French public among whom fully 86% express a favorable opinion of Jews, a higher proportion than even than among the American public.
valkyrie wrote:The surveys, as far as I know weren't taken by Daniel Pipes. I found them on his website while searching for opinion surveys on Britains Muslim population. I personally think it's fine to post information from a rightwing website as long as the information is correct. If you think British Muslims aren't radicalized or disagree with my link than address it.

Theres more to life than Murdoch Media and other zionists.
If you actually lived in the UK you would not hold that opinion.

The other is in a Semi Dictatorship like government who arrest people for demonstrating.
Maybe, thats why?
